Moving to Brooklyn?

Brooklyn Follies

Title: Brooklyn Follies
By: Paul Auster

"I was looking for a quiet place to die." Why would anyone want to read a book that begins with that sentence I asked myself. Fortunately, I read the next few pages and was hooked. This is not a book about death and dying; this is a book about the celebration of life and living as the author introduces us to the characters who inhabit the Brooklyn neighborhood near Prospect Park. Nathan Glass thinks he has found a place to contemplate the end of his life. Instead he finds wonderful people who involve him in their lives, and he is able to reconcile his past. Enjoy spending some time in Brooklyn.
